states. he is the first president since andrew jackson to be reelected to have a smaller share of the vote than when he won. at this point, he is tied with george w. bush for the narrowest margin of victory ever for is successfully reelected president. we are a very divided country. demography gives democrats an opportunity to build a majority coalition. they have won the popular vote five out of six presidential elections. it is a real challenge in executing the opportunity that the democratic -- demographic change provides. the campaign showed the weakness of both sides been the republicans are unable to win 20% of minorities. both parties are looking at structural challenges in who they speak to them back the chance that obama had to build a robust coalition was not realised, but demography still gives democrats an edge on the presidential level. >> i've focused very heavily on young voters. it has been my personal crusade to figure out how the right can win more young voters back onto our site. in 2008, it was an historic election. barack obama won young voters by 34 points

: jackson, mississippi. host: good morning. what do you think about the u.s. electoral system? caller: i would rather see just the popular vote. sometimes i do not think it is fair. but the one thing i wanted to call in about, about obama being a christian, one sunday morning about one year ago i was getting ready to worship and he was talking on television. i actually heard him say i am muslim. i was talking to a friend the other day and she said she heard the same thing. so, he is not a christian, he is a muslim. he said it on television. eyes and ears do not deny. host: i am sorry to say, i did that here that, i am looking at articles about that. if the president says he is a christian, does that matter to you? caller: did you hear him say that he was a christian? host: we have aired programs on c-span where he talks about his faith and background, yes. caller: i also heard him say that he is a muslim. besides, the other thing, he is profane to things that god has said in the bible. that are wrong. the gay style, and also abortion. and he is for that. host: do you look at mitt romney'
jesse jackson jr. reelected. our next call comes from nashville, tennessee. this is the jacob. caller: thank you for receiving my call. i voted for jill stein. i feel both parties are very short sighted as far as the future of the planet. it is proven by the flooding and so forth. if we do not get into sustainable thinking, then all of this is basically a moot question. also, at each individual has their own responsibility to change their lifestyle so that they do not get sick. it is a two edged sword. corporations will always trump the environment for short-term gains. for example, the promotion of soft drinks. all of these things are killing us, and it is an economic factor. therefore, i am relieved that obama got in, the lesser of two evils thing, but i definitely feel like we are sure-sided. host: have you looked on line to total votell stein's take was? caller: i have not looked. i am sure it is less than 1%. the thing about third parties it is they can have an influence, and if each of us raises consciousness, that could change things. host: as we mentioned earlier, there is a c

minute. ms. jackson lee: first, i think appropriate to to welcome back my colleagues and to congratulate all of those who have chosen again if re-elected to serve this great, great nation and for those for the first time who have the honor and privilege of being in this storied institution. we can come together and make a difference in the lives of americans and we can in fact find way to help the most vulnerable, the impoverished and those who work err day. i know we can solve this problem of sequestration. i lead now into something that is quite contrary to the idea of america's issues and problems. and ask my colleagues to join me in supporting a congressional gold medal for a little girl who was shot in the head by the taliban in pakistan, standing up for education for our children and for her fellow boys and girls. what an amazing young lady. now, healing in a british hospital, 61 million children worldwide are not enrolled in school. we're advocating or many around the world are advocating for a nobel peace prize for her. i believe the congressional gold medal symbolizes those who
or or jessekson -- the eveevent jackson, that is the way that you grow. you could evolve into a james mcgrath or michelle. i'm ambivalent about it. the only problem i have with it is to maintain good standards. just be honest with what you're doing. make sure that you get the right name, make sure that you get the information right behind it. don't say, will you stand over this? if it is actuality and a real news event. i see a lot of young people and older folks that perhaps don't quite understand that. perhaps they will get a mentor and they will learn from those things. the only real thing that sticks in my craw, you have to blame a lot of this kind of scuffling to cover something to the deputy commissioner for public information. the issue to many credentials. you have this excessive coverage of an event and it was difficult for legacy media to do that because it was very difficult. it made it a lot harder. perhaps the difficulties will render a whole new kind of approach to composition. >> it is just too easy. want a bellyache too much because i don't think people really want to -- >> [t
